The Democrat reports there was a frantic scene outside as family members gathered trying to obtain information about their loved ones. Marquitta Campbell told the paper her husband Bobby Riggins Jr. arrived for a job interview at Dyke Industries about 8:30 a.m. and that she was on the phone with him when she heard a commotion.

“The next thing I know, he said, ‘Baby, I’ve been stabbed five times,'” Campbell told the paper. “‘I’ve been stabbed.'”

She said her husband later called her from the hospital to tell her he had internal bleeding and was going into surgery.

There was no word on a motive or whether or not the suspect is an employee. Dyke Industries distributes residential and commercial building supplies, such as doors and windows, according to the company’s website. A company representative didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

“We’re just trying to figure out why this happened and what caused this person to do this,” Miller told the paper.
